Project Grandad

8 posts in this topic

Hi, im new to this site and in the newbie section I have put that im newly back to fords and im looking for some advise and ideas on a possible new project.

So my grandad passed away in December gone and I have been left with his 1995 Escort Estate, with the huge power hose in the form of the 1.8 d :s I had just decided to let it sell on but was only going to look at around £300 for it with tax and test still on it. I had a bit of a clean up of it today and I have realised that its really worth more than £300 in sentimental value. So after giving it a bit of a clean out and wash I have found that its a reasonably clean shell and with only 71k on the clock!

So with this in mind and with my love of Vauxhall I was possibly thinking of going for a Vaux power plant? possibly a c20let or even V6? has anyone ever done a ford Vaux combination on here with on of these? I could be very willing to stick with a ford power plant in the equivilant yb or cossie v6. I know to do this its going to be a case of changing the fuel tand and a few other bits and pieces along the way.

I would just like peoples thought and ideas on the idea.

cheers stevo

A Ford with a Vaux#### engine?

Sacrilege indeed.

As a wise man once said- I'd rather push a Ford than drive a Vaux####.!

Ha ha @ stoney. At least I can appreciate both sides :) just not keen on new stuff.

Also the thought of a Saab motor crossed my mind last night? Anyone know or seen one done?
